Antiques and dolls available at weekend antiques fair

Date Posted: 2006-11-02

The 13th Annual Antiques Fair opens its doors tomorrow for a three-day run in Okinawa City.

The annual fair this year features more than 40 booths offering everything from historical antiques to Tsuboya-style pottery thatís hard to find elsewhere. The fair takes place at the gymnasium inside Okinawa City Koza Athletic Park, close to the Okinawa South Expressway Interchange exit.

Historical arts and crafts, plus tableware, attract antiques patrons at the annual near-year end event. There are also opportunities to find famous and lovable Japanese dolls like Maneki Neko, a cat with a golden coin, and Fukusuke, a boy with thick earlobes in a samurai costume. Both are purported to bring good luck and financial success. Another popular figurine is the Shisa, the Okinawa lion, which carries the powes to repel evil spirits.

The 13th Annual Antiques Fair runs 10am~7pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Last entry to the site is at 6pm. Admission is •200 for adults, and is free to junior high school students and younger. Profits will be donated to the Okianwa City Scholarship Society.
